Hi all!

I have a strange problem. Here's the code.
Private Sub cmdTest_Click()
Open "c:\thomas" For Input As #1 ' file opened for reading
   
    'While Not EOF(1)
        Line Input #1, instring1
        Line Input #1, instring2
        Line Input #1, instring3
        Line Input #1, instring4
        Line Input #1, instring5
    'Wend
Close #1
'MsgBox instring1 & vbCrLf & instring2 & vbCrLf & instring3 & vbCrLf & instring4 & vbCrLf & instring5
scriptlang.RunCommand instring1, instring2, instring3, instring4, instring
End Sub


When I run the sub Scriptlang.RunCommand (here's the code):

Public Sub RunCommand(Command2Run, Syntaxx1, Syntaxx2, Syntaxx3, Syntaxx4)        'Runs the command u ask for
    If Command2Run = "RegDelete" Then RegDelete Syntaxx1, Syntaxx2
    If Command2Run = "RegSetKey" Then RegSetKey Syntaxx1, Syntaxx2, Syntaxx3, Syntaxx4
    If Command2Run = "FileDelete" Then FileDelete Syntaxx1, Syntaxx2
    If Command2Run = "SendMSG" Then SendMSG Syntaxx1
End Sub

It does not evaluate the string Command2Run to be the same as the one on the other side of the = sign.

When I try to use RegSetKey, the value of instring1 is "RegSetKey", and the value of Command2Run is also "RegSetKey". BUT when it compares the string Command2Run with "RegSetKey" it doesn't think it's the same???!

Please help =)

Try this:

If Ucase(Trim(Command2Run)) = Ucase(Trim("RegSetKey")) Then RegSetKey Syntaxx1, Syntaxx2, Syntaxx3, Syntaxx4
